San Diego Padres World Series Odds: Fernando Tatis Jr. Suspension Is Bad News

San Diego Padres World Series odds are up on all major US sportsbooks. While they aren’t seen as no-doubt contenders like the Los Angeles DodgersNew York Yankees, and Houston Astros the Padres are perhaps the most intriguing team in that next echelon of MLB World Series hopefuls.

The best Padres World Series odds come from Caesars Sportsbook, which gives San Diego +1600 odds to win it all. Again, the current favorites are the Yankees, Dodgers, and Astros.

Those odds shifted from a week ago, when Caesars listed the Padres at +1100. Why did the odds get longer? Blame it on Fernando Tatis Jr. and the revelation that the San Diego shortstop has been suspended for the remainder of the 2022 season due to violation of MLB’s banned substances.

Padres Scramble to Earn Homefield Advantage for Playoffs

What can we expect from the Padres down the stretch as the team fights for a playoff spot? The team is only two games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals for the third and final National League Wild Card slot.

Even with the acquisition of Juan Soto, the Padres are 4-8 in their past 12 games, and the lineup, which was supposed to make pitchers soil themselves, has been all or nothing. Three times since Soto started wearing the brown-and-yellow, the Padres have been shut out, and half their runs in the past 10 games came in two games that featured 10-plus-run outbursts.

Who are the Padres? How will the clubhouse respond to the shocking news that their All-Star shortstop will not play again until next May because he used a banned substance while rehabbing in the Dominican Republic?

      How to Bet on MLB Games

      You can wager on MLB games in two standards ways: (1) moneyline; and (2) total runs, or Over/Under.

      On a moneyline bet, you simply pick the team you think will win, and if they prove victorious, you win the bet based on odds, such as +135 ($135 wins on a $100 wager).

      If you bet the total runs, you are choosing whether one or both teams will score over or under a certain number.

      You can also bet the run line, where you wager on the live scoring of the game based on what’s happening in the game as it occurs (as in BetMGM’s live sports betting app).

      Bettors can also wager on “First 5,” where you pick which team will lead after five innings. Or you can also seek prop bets, like which team will win the first inning, and so on. Check your sportsbook for prop bets available for your baseball betting.

      What Are MLB Futures Bets?

      A futures bet is any wager on an event or series or anything else (like an award) that will happen in the future. Sportsbooks will give you odds on many futures markets, like winning the World Series, pennant, division, or even winning a certain number of games.

      Futures can also be special wagers like picking the World Series matchup (Padres vs. Astros, for example). If that matchup occurs, you can win no matter which team ends up winning the title. Most sports betting apps will list dozens of futures bets for MLB.

      San Diego Padres World Series Odds FAQs

      What do World Series odds mean?

      California sportsbooks use odds based on a $100 wager for a futures bet like World Series winner. For example, +200 is the same as 2-to-1, meaning a $100 bet that wins would pay out $200. So, +1000 would net you $1,000 on a $100 bet.

      Where do I find World Series odds?

      Most sportsbooks list their World Series odds on the MLB page in the “Team Futures” section. There, you should find odds for the World Series, as well as division winners and pennant winners.

      How often are World Series odds updated?

      Not as often as Super Bowl odds in the NFL, for example, as there are so many more games played in MLB so lines don’t really shift after individual games. More so, World Series odds will shift due to injuries, trades, or larger winning/losing trends. For instance, the Los Angeles Angels’ odds tanked after their 14-game losing streak in May and June.
